You can't rename it to Content 2. I don't think XF Utility can read that. It has to see it as "Content" and then can look inside. XF Utility is not a smart program. It's very basic....very simple.

So you need to figure out your workflow. Here's a couple of options for ya:

Option 1:
You can do an ingest of the footage through XF Utility which will allow you (1) make a back up the card (sort of like a disk image) or (2) export out each clip as a self-contained MXF file that can be read independently of the XML on the card.

Option 2:
Copy of the cards to your desktop, but place them in folders you've already setup (shot01, shot02, shot03, etc.)

Option 3:
Use some sort of a copy software to copy and verify your data. ShotPut Pro being the most readily used option that I'm aware of.

Option 4:
Use Adobe Prelude to ingest, tag, and rough edit your footage
